The National Transportation Safety Board has developed a five-day course in rotorcraft accident investigation that will be delivered at its training center near Washington in August.

The course, which has been in development for more than a year, was designed to provide investigators from regulatory authorities, investigative agencies, private industry, and potential parties to an NTSB investigation, an overview of the procedures, methods and skills required to perform a comprehensive rotorcraft accident investigation.

The training will be offered August 16-20, 2010, at the NTSB Training Center in Ashburn, Virginia.

Examples from recently concluded investigations will be used to illustrate particular aspects of the investigative process.  Case studies may include midair collisions, in- flight fires, in-flight break-ups, and weather-related accidents.
